Thai Cave Rescue
The dramatic rescue of 12 boys from the Thai caves
In June 2019, twelve boys aged 11 to 16 and their football coach became trapped by rising flood waters in the Tham Luang cave network in Thailand. They were eventually found deep inside the caves ten days later, leading to one of the most difficult cave rescue attempts ever undertaken. Battling rising flood waters, miles of narrow caves and the fact that many of the boys couldn’t swim, the rescuers divers had to sedate them, connect them to dive tanks and stretcher them out one by one. Here we bring you the full story, including first hand accounts from those involved.
